Iraqi Militant Group "The Arrows of God" Releases the German Hostage Hannelore Marianne Krause but Threatens to Kill Her Son

On September 11, 2007, the Islamist website http://ekhlaas.org, hosted by Layered Technologies, Inc. in Texas, USA, posted a video message by the Islamist group "The Arrows of God," announcing the release of the German hostage Hannelore Marianne Krause, who was kidnapped with her son Sinan in March 2007. The message explains that she is being released as a reward for her decision to embrace Islam, but reiterates the threat to kill her son within 10 days unless the German government withdraws its forces from Afghanistan.
